Abstract: 
"Following the signing of the treaty of 1833, which required that Potawatomi tribes relocate west of the Mississippi, European settlers began to arrive in the area now called Glenview. Primarily of English and German origin, they established farms trading posts. the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 had a profound effect on the hamlet. Lumber from the forests of Wisconsin used to rebuild the city moved from the north via rail. By 1872, the Chicago, Milwukee, St. Paiul and Pacific Railroad laid the first set of tracks from Wisconsin to Chicago; the line brought prosperity to local residents. In 1899, the village was incorporated. The first mayor, Hugh Burnham, a nephew of Chicago architect Daniel Burnham is credited with its name - Glenview."
